Using an unmodified kernel, I changed the device tree to make the abb
regulator power the cpu instead of vcc.  After doing so, I was able to
read the microvolt value, and it matched the processor's desired OPP
voltage, and the debug code showed the abb regulator was attempting to
set the various index based on the needed voltage.  I think the abb
driver is working correctly.

I think tomorrow, I will re-apply the patches and tweak it again to
support both vdd and vbb regulators.  If it crashes again, I'll look
more closely at the logs to see if I can determine why.  I think it's
pretty close.  I also need to go back and find the SmartReflex stuff
as well.
